REV'EREND, a. L. reverendus.

1. Worthy of reverence entitled to respect mingled with fear and affection as reverend and gracious senators.

A reverend sire among them came.

This epithet is, I believe, never applied to the Supreme Being, or to his laws or institutions. In lieu of it we use venerable.

2. A title of respect given to the clergy or ecclesiastics. We style a clergyman reverend a bishop is styled right reverend an archbishop most reverend. The religious in catholic countries, are styled reverend fathers abbesses, prioresses, &c. reverend mothers. In Scotland, as in the United States, the clergy are individually styled reverend. A synod is styled very reverend, and the general assembly venerable.
